Friend and I were in Gainesville, she asked me if I had ever eaten at a Bonefish Grill, and when I said no, she said she would treat me to an early dinner for my late birthday. The soups - corn chowder with crab and lobster bisque were steaming hot, creamy, delicious, and very satisfying. The bread and pesto was... More

Good standardized fish place. You seen one you've seen'um all. That said, they are a good choice when you want good fish and don't feel like taking a chance. The bang bang shrimp is great as are most of the seafood choices. The mango salsa is a good compliment to grilled fish. Decor is low key upscale and service was... More

We've visited several Bonefish Grill establishments; this one is good - but not great. The food was decent, but the atmosphere really needs some updating (by comparison, the Carrollwood, FL "test" store is eons ahead with a newly remodeled interior - sleek, modern, inviting yet comfortable). This BFG reads more like a typical chain restaurant in a strip mall -... More

Cant say we are a fan of cobra. It was not bad but the whole thing with sauce and whatever else it came with was just ok. We sat at the bar since it was very crowded and actually enjoyed it as we ended up talking with people there. Bartender recommended another fish and next time we will probably get... More

Went there for my birthday dinner. Had the cod special and it was amazing. Not tough like cod can be since it is a thicker fish. Just wonderful. My boyfriend had a the lamb chops. The chops were very big, larger than expected but so tender. We also had the oysters Rockefeller which were great too. We had a wonderful... More

We love the menu offerings here, with many fresh fish dishes and great appetizers. My wife loved the seared tuna main course, while I enjoyed three appetizers in place of a main course - the wedge salad, the lobster bisque, and the sashimi. All were excellent, though the bisque had just a touch too much spice for my taste. Still,... More

It's a popular venue all right. Always busy. Why call a place bonefish when you don't eat bonefish? Deserts are enormous. Guaranteed good food but has that big chain feel.

Overpriced, overcooked, small portions of bland food. Service was mediocre. Not impressed. Nothing to shout about, just another chain...

For a casual dinner out, this is a favorite go-to place. I love seafood of any kind. My husband enjoys a smaller range of seafood, but can always find a shrimp dish he likes plus they have good steak and chicken options. Sometimes we just get a couple of appetizers each and find it plenty. They also have a decent... More
